Train to Teach with School Direct and the Wokingham Federation

The Wokingham Federation offers places to talented graduates for training to become teachers. We are looking to appoint excellent trainees who are enthusiastic and passionate about teaching and who have the ability and drive to become outstanding practitioners.

We like to think that training with the Wokingham Federation, in partnership with the University of Reading (and Teach South East for Business Studies) is as good as anywhere in the country.

Depending on your subject specialism, you can now earn up to £32,000 with a bursary or £34,000 with a scholarship if you train to teach with us. Up to date details of funding for 2020 – 2021 trainees can be found at https://getintoteaching.education.gov.uk/funding-and-salary/overview.

Places are available for all courses on the fee-paying route. We also have a few English places on the salaried route. http://wokinghamfederation.co.uk/availability-of-places-2020-21/

The ITT Coordinator at The Bulmershe School is Annemarie Davies. Please see the video below, where she takes part in a question and answer session at the University of Reading:
